Heron by SilverMoon-Archer Heron by SilverMoon-Archer
I'm not so sure what kind of heron is this but if someone knows, tell me.

Edit: It is a Boat-billed Heron, Thank-you for helping me.

Cool :D I almost saw two in Costa Rica... "almost" meaning that the guide tried to point out a pair who were sleeping, but I could not locate him and we were in a bit of a hurry so we could not stop to investigate further. Too bad, it is an interesting Heron!

Yeah,that's too bad, hurries are not definitely not good. I'm a very calm person, that's why I was the only one on the group who saw that Heron, he was hiding and I had to position myself is a way that there were almost no branches and twigs on the way =D
